In this photo taken Wednesday, Dec. 18, 2013, in Chicago, pedestrians walk over a visual reminder to look out for bicycles along a special bike lane on Dearborn St. in Chicago’s famed Loop. An early bone-zapping blast of snow and ice hasn’t stopped a surprising number of cyclists from spinning through the slush in Chicago this winter, thanks in part to a city so serious about accommodating them that it deploys mini-snow plows to clear bike lanes. A city councilwoman’s recent proposal to institute a $25 annual cycling tax set off a lively debate. Mayor Rahm Emanuel has made bike lanes and bike programs a signature issue, believing it makes downtown an attractive place for bright young people and innovative companies.
